If I may give a little slice of opinion here, I have always felt the presence, the company of older musicians a great help. Not just as an example musically or advice or guidance given but simply the company that gives you context and insights into the culture and attitudes around it, perhaps more important than just the music per se. But that is in the Irish context, that seems very different to me from the English folkscene that appears so obsessed with clubs and bookings.
